Poonam and Priyanka Shah might just have made their Bollywood debut with Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan, but they are not unfamiliar faces. The Indian American twins set the stage on fire in Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 9 with the dance form they specialise in - “bfusion” - a combination of Bharatnatyam, Bollywood, and hip-hop.

And now the identical sisters are seen grooving to Amit Trivedi’s beats in the Abhishek Bachchan-Taapsee Pannu-Vicky Kaushal film, reflecting the lead characters’dilemmas as well.

Kashyap took to Twitter to introduce them to the world:

Poonam and Priyanka are indeed hugely popular on social media, with 149K followers on Instagram and 266K subscribers on YouTube.

These girls are as sexy as they are talented, and boy, can they set the dance floor on fire!

We certainly hope to see more of them in Bollywood!
